Historical Travels, Archaeology News, and History At Ancient Digger


As many of you know, I'm the owner of the Ancient Digger, an archaeology site that takes readers on a tour of my life as an archaeology student. Just a few months ago, my blog was picked up for the blogroll on Discovery News under Archeology, giving me an entire new group of readers.

I started TravelSphere to include some articles of a more historical nature, one's in which would not fit the topic of archaeology on the Ancient Digger, but they are wonderfully fascinating just the same. The two blogs are interlinked, so on occasion I will feature articles from the Ancient Digger Archaeology on TravelSphere.

The Ancient Digger


 If you're looking to learn something new, and let's face we all are, Ancient Digger Archaeology has  a special Monday Ground Up perfect for that occasion. I tend to focus on subjects the readers may not be as familiar with, teaching both you and myself something in the process. Here's the latest news for Ancient Digger, so check it out when you have some time put aside.

Monday Ground Up: Grand Master's Palace in Valletta Malta

Grand Master's Palace is located is Valletta, Malta and was the legendary seat of the Knights Hospitallerof Saint John. The order of the Knights Hospitaller arrived in Malta in the first half of the 16th century, after spending several years in route to nowhere without a base after their expulsion by the Ottomans in 1522.

Saint John's Co Cathedral

Saint John's Co Cathedral in Malta acted as the church of the Knights Hospitaller in Malta during the 11th century, protecting pilgrims traveling to the Holy Land. The Saint John's Co Cathedral was commissioned by Grand Master himself Jean de la Cassiere and the cathedral was designed by Gerolamo Cassar, the same architect that designed Grand Master's Palace.

Lauren, I really enjoy these blogs, as has a well deserved reputation for quality history posts and archeological information. Discovery is lucky to have such a well versed scholar as yourself.
